No More Dry Skin

Combating that dry, itchy feeling is easier than you think

Moisturize from the inside out
Dry skin is caused by a decrease in the skin's natural moisturizers. Antioxidants and essential fatty acids are two of your most valuable allies in helping it to rehydrate. Eating antioxidant-rich foods such as spinach and broccoli can stimulate your cell's oil production, while the natural fats in salmon help to make hardened cells softer.

Hit the gym
What isn't working out good for? Besides helping you get fit, exercise enhances circulation and blood flow, resulting in rejuvenated skin. As for that sweat? Perspiration initiates the production of sebum, a natural moisturizer.

Fill up the water bottle
Staying hydrated is essential for healthy skin, and you should be drinking at least six glasses of water per day. If you find that your home heating system is drying you out, invest in a humidifier to pick up the slack.

Stay dry when possible
If you shower more than once per day, you may want to cut back or keep them as brief as possible. Why? Long showers wash away your skin's natural moisturizers.
